Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XS955 60" Rear Projection HDTV
Disconnecting wiring from power supply block
This step may be optional, if power supply block must be transferred to purchased replacement optical block. Undo the blue plastic-coated wire holders to release the two wire bundles. Disconnect the connectors shown with the dotted lines in the photo below. One, which presumably provides power, is disconnected directly from the power supply block, and the other is a regular wire connector.

Remove the screw and gently pull the blue ribbon ribbon cable out of the side of the C Board:
Your optical block should now be entirely free of the TV and ready to ship. I recommend adding specific protection for the projection lens, then sealing the whole unit in a bag to prevent infiltration of dust or packing materials, then carefully packaging it with substantial padding.
Removing the projection lamp (in cases where you are installing a purchased replacement optical block)
Loosen the hex screw next to the projection lamp housing, and pull the lamp and housing outward from the metal clips.

That is a difficult opperation you would really need a service tech to do it or if you are very good a taking things apart pay close attention to how you do it the optical block is in the middle of the tv behind everthing you have to remove th back then carefully take out the insides not something I can really desrcibe try looking on you tube for a video tutorial
